1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

Bloodshot

Bloodshot
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Wilson
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, Guy Pearce

Ray Garrison (Diesel) is slain by baddie Martin Axe (Kebbell) but then brought back to life with nanotechnology by Dr Harting (Pearce). Debut director Wilson is well aware how daft it all is and delivers a flashy, fast-paced action movie that never takes itself too seriously. Big, dumb fun.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK / USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Booksmart

Booksmart
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • Directed by: Olivia Wilde
  • Cast: Skyler Gisondo, Kaitlyn Dever, Lisa Kudrow

Molly (Feldstein) and Amy (Dever) are proud to be brainiacs, but on their last day of high school they resolve to fit as much fun as they can into a single night. Wilde’s debut feature is zesty and confident with box-fresh writing, well-drawn characters and a swaggering hip-hop soundtrack; Feldstein, in particular, steps up to leading lady status.

The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

Just Mercy

Just Mercy
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Destin Daniel Cretton
  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Michael B Jordan, Brie Larson

Walter (Foxx) is convicted of the murder of a teenage white girl on the testimony of one felon (Blake-Nelson), despite a lack of incriminating evidence. Lawyer Bryan (Jordan) acts on his behalf. Old-fashioned, crusading legal drama which builds into an emotional and thought-provoking confrontation of the abiding racism in American society.

  • South Korea
  • 2h 12min
  • Directed by: Bong Joon-ho
  • Cast: Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam

Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) and his family hatch a cunning plot to improve their lives by infiltrating a wealthy family. Bong Joon-Ho’s slickly directed and darkly hilarious satire catches you off guard with its mix of pithy humour and tender family interactions, and then unfolds into something blazingly brutal, smart and heartfelt.

Queen & Slim

Queen & Slim
  • 2019
  • US / Canada
  • 2h 12min
  • Directed by: Melina Matsoukas
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Chloë Sevigny

Queen (Turner-Smith) and Slim (Kaluuya) are a mismatched duo whose Tinder date goes horribly wrong and puts them on the run in the American South. An oddball road movie with style, subtlety and low-key charm, burning with genuine about racism, written and directed by black women.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • 2020
  • US / Japan
  • Directed by: Jeff Fowler
  • Cast: James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • U
  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.
